Archives and Texts is an interdisciplinary research seminar series co-organized by the Departments of English and Modern Languages at the University of Reading.

Our aim is to bring together colleagues and students interested in the broad field of book history: including theories, methodologies, new insights into literature and literary history, collections and different types of archives. It is for all those interested in the history of the book, reading, publishing, editing, print, typography, design, image and text, as well those who use archives or are involved in archives.P1010870

Papers are delivered in an informal and friendly atmosphere, promoting debate and a lively exchange of ideas.

The co-organisers are Dr Nicola Wilson (English) and Dr Sophie Heywood (Modern Languages).
